GIFT OF CASH
Your gift of cash helps the children of Boys Ranch and may provide you with a tax deduction.
GIFT OF SECURITIES
Your gift of stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds, makes an immediate impact on Cal Farley’s life-changing work.
Making a gift of securities to help the children at Cal Farley’s can be easy, too! Most gifts of stock can be easily transferred electronically from your brokerage account directly to Cal Farley’s.
GIFT OF REAL ESTATE
Real estate that meets certain criteria can be given outright as a gift, be included as part of a trust or donated as part of your will or estate plans.
Donor Advised Funds
A donor-advised fund is a special charitable giving account. It allows you, your family or business to make tax-deductible charitable gifts of cash, stocks or bonds to a nonprofit organization that sponsors a DAF program.
If you have a donor-advised fund and your sponsoring organization participates in DAF Direct, making a recommendation is as easy as completing the online form on this page. If your donor-advised fund is not part of DAF Direct, contact your fund directly and recommend a gift in support of our work. You will need to provide the following information:

GIFT FROM AN IRA

GIFT FROM A CHARITABLE LEAD TRUST
A charitable lead trust provides income to Cal Farley’s for a period of time you choose, either a fixed number of years or one or more persons’ lives.
There are two types of charitable lead trusts:
- Grantor lead trust — You retain ownership of the trust. You will be entitled to an immediate income tax deduction for the value of future payments to Cal Farley’s, but income from the trust will appear each year on your tax return as it is earned. You are allowed an income tax deduction for income that will not be taxable until a future date.
- Non-grantor lead trust — A non-grantor lead trust makes payments to Cal Farley’s for the period of time you choose, but will not be returned to you. While there are no immediate income tax advantages under this option, you will not be liable for federal gift or estate tax on all or a portion of the assets that eventually pass to your family or others you choose.
